GetHuman-michalll's review of H&R Block customer service
GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's H&R Block customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-michalll: Terrible experience, never again
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/22/17?
GetHuman-michalll: Our tax preparer retired so we decided to try H&R Block. We brought our previous years taxes, our mileage, donations, information on my home office, etc. The woman didn't look at any of it. She basically filled out an online form, charged us $***, and then filed our taxes wrong. They got kicked back because she transposed my first and last name. I had cashed out an IPERS account since I lost my job and we needed to pay bills, and of course they took **% since I'm before retirement age. She told me to call IPERS and tell them there was a hardship and see if they would give my **% back, which made no sense to me but I did it. The customer representative at IPERs was very confused, saying that should be my tax preparer's job when filing. This was such a terrible experience for us that we will never use H&R Block again.

GetHuman-michalll: For that I would say four out of five.
